Splitting the Atom
Massive Attack Lyrics


The baby was born
Nettles and ferns
The evening it chokes
The candle it burns
This disguise covers bitter lies
Repeating the joke
The meaning it dies
Pass me a coat I'm not afraid to leave
I'm letting you know
I know what you need
I'll turn you around
This beautiful town
And then you'll believe it when your eyes then deceive you

It's easy, don't let it go
It's easy, don't let it go
It's easy, don't let it go
Don't Lose It

It's getting colder outside
Your rented space
They shadow box and they paper chase
It never stops
And we'll never learn
No hope without dope
The jobless return
The bankers have bailed
The mighty retreat
The pleasure it fails
At the end of the week
You take it or leave
Or what you receive
To what you receive
Is eternited leave

It's easy, don't let it go
It's easy, don't let it go
It's easy, don't let it go
Don't lose it

Incandescent light at doors
In adolescent menopause
In little clicks you got the music stops
The needle sticks and the penny drops
The summer's gone before you know
The muffled drums of relentless flow
You're looking at stars that give you Vertigo
The sun's still burning and dust will blow
Honey scars I'll keep you near
Our blood is gold nothing to fear
We killed the time and I love you dear
A kiss of wine we'll disappear
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible

"Spitting The Atom"

The baby was born
Nettles and Ferns
The evening it chokes
The candle it burns
This disguise covers
Bitter lies
Repeating the joke
The meaning it dies
Pass me a coat I'm not afraid to leave
I'm letting you know
I know what you need
I'll turn you around
This beautiful town
And then you'll believe it when your eyes then deceive you

Its easy, dont let it go
Its easy, dont let it go
Its easy, dont let it go
Don't Lose It

Its getting colder outside
Your rented space
They shadow box and they
Paper chase
It never stops
And we'll never learn
No hope without dope
The jobless return
The bankers have bailed
The mighty retreat
The pleasure it fails
At the end of the week
You take it or leave
Or what you receive
To what you receive
Is eternited leave

Its easy, dont let it go
Its easy, dont let it go
Its easy, dont let it go
Don't lose it

Incandescent light at doors
In adolescent menopause
In little clicks you got the music stops
The needle sticks and the penny drops
The summer's gone before you know
The muffled drums of relentless flow
You're looking at stars that give you Vertigo
The sun's still burning and dust will blow
Honey scars I'll keep you near
Our blood is gold nothing to fear
We killed the time and I love you dear
A kiss of wine we'll disappear
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible

Massive Attack, Tricky, Portishead..The Trip-Hop scene seemed very short lived but very influential in the following decades.

Jonas ABN

Pfff i haven't listened to M.A for so long, too long actually lol there's more trip-hop bands that I like: screenatorium, thievery coorporation, rekevin, worm is green, hooverphonic, antrabata idk but i would consider RJD2 and mogwai trip hop too hah peace yall check those bands out

austinvon96

I wholeheartedly agree

Shane Goodman

@Eugeniya Leshenko That has always been the way with music evolution, being influenced and built upon by what came before. Swing to Jazz, blues to rock and roll and all elements in-between and beyond.

Shane Goodman

@Ian Knights true, though apart from full albums from the artists mentioned I have many compilations with some real gems amongst them, Terence Parker, Hub, Minx to name a few.

Eugeniya Leshenko

I think it still exists in many bands/musicians though... Maybe not as pure genre but as one of the voices in the mix
